Broken Blossoms (1919)

The Films of D.W. Griffith

In 1897, Griffith set out to pursue a career both acting and writing for the theater but for the most part was unsuccessful. Reluctantly, he agreed to act in the new motion picture medium for Edwin S. Porter at the Edison Company. Griffith was eventually offered a job at the American Mutoscope & Biograph [US] where he directed over 450 short films.
